    Upon SSHing into my ipod touch (3g, 3.1.2) and navigating to the Applications folder, I found that all the folder names were encrypted. Is this because I have to alter permissions (chmod)?

    And if so, do I check off the box that says "Set group, owner, and permissions recursively"? When I attempted to set permissions to 777, it was incredibly sluggish

    That is the way AppStore applications are handled. The contents of the folders are not encrypted; you can open each folder to see what application it is.

    There is no need to set all permissions to 777.

    Anyway, welcome to the fora.
